... on a side trip to the 'Jungle' neighborhood of St Pete this week, we stopped at Mazzaro's Italian Market. We enjoy every now and then to check out what they have in cheeses, wine and the deli (we were not interested in Japanese A5 NY Strip for $124/lb on this trip) and grab a light lunch. If you haven't been there, it is a must-see in St Pete, 2909 22nd Ave N.
There is no taking away from the experience, the food quality and being immersed in shoppers and yelling staff serving customers. We found many of the packaged foods, the cheeses and beef were significantly over priced. We both feel a) you have to visit and b) be sure to have lunch.
